Re: Island Packet and Cape Dory 33- 40 range.

I have seen a few that had teak decks that did not leak, but I believe they were layered in alternating patterns of straight over diagonal over straight. I will have to ask the person who owns the boat. I have not been on many with a full teak deck, and none that I noticed were leaking, but I will certainly take your word on it. The oiled parts should be the railings and the vertical pieces, not the deck itself, which I should have specified, because slippery is not good. I have been at work since 03:00 and will not be able to leave for several more hours, perhaps sometime tonight, I hope. Once this day is done I think I will sleep a day LOL.

It is good to learn from your mistakes, but much better to learn from the mistakes of others...
